I Turned Back and He Gets A Wine & Cheese Party!  FREE Wine & Cheese Party 1st Sunday of November.

My husband and I went for a hike in McKittrick Canyon on Sunday November 6th, 2011.

Here are the Guadalupe mountains.  They are on the other side of McKittrick Canyon.

This is El Capitan, a famous part of the Guadalupe Mountains.


This is from the hike in McKittrick Canyon.  My husband says he has been trying to come here for 20 years in November so he could see the trees changing colors, so he was looking … (1 comments)

century 21: What Animal Do You Paint In Your Town? Adorable Painted Donkeys Are In Carrizozo, New Mexico. - 11/20/11 08:49 PM
While I was chasing the Union Pacific Steam Train 844 from Wyoming to New Mexico, I saw these cute painted donkeys.  Just like some towns have painted cows, salmon, horses, and fish, this little town has very nice painted donkeys.

This was the first one I saw on a street corner near the railroad tracks.

The name of the city is so unusual I thought I had better take a picture with the name in it so I didn't get it wrong.

Here was the second donkey I spotted.  Then is was a hunt for all the donkeys … (0 comments)

century 21: Two Stabbings And A Beheading 11/20/11 At 5pm Joust At The Texas Renaissance Festival - 11/20/11 07:55 PM
Before the 5pm Joust at the Texas Renaissance Festival started, there was a warning to people faint of heart and small children that this joust was going to be "to the death".

Here are the four competitors in their finery.  I love how they had the horses in their outfits as well.

I was closest to the knight in Green.  He was representing France.  At the back of this picture you can see the king and queen of England, France and the Ren Fest.

This picture is a little blurry because it was taken just after they two … (1 comments)

century 21: I Love To Travel, But It Is Always Great To Come Home To Texas! - 11/19/11 06:35 PM
I Love To Travel, But It Is Always Great To Come Home To Texas!

I was told that this is a famous picture.  Have you seen it before?  The mountains are the Guadalupe Mountains.

I happened upon a new rest area. 

This is one of the fanciest rest areas I've seen in Texas.  It has lots of lovely stone and tile. 

The information boards tell about the surrounding area and also about the wind turbine project.

They built some nice picnic areas as well.

When I travel, I always love to see this sign.

century 21: Do You Love Trains? Steam Train UP844 in October & November 2011 - 11/19/11 06:13 PM
Do You Love Trains?  Steam trains are rare these days, and Union Pacific runs its UP844 only a few times a year as a goodwill gesture.  These pictures are from the October - November 2011 run from Cheyenne, Wyoming. 

Here UP844 is crossing a trestle going over a small river.  There were about 20 of us on an adjacent bridge taking this photo.

This man followed the train from Wyoming to Colorado.

Here is a train engine that we saw on one of the days that the train wasn't running.  This particular engine looks like the one I … (1 comments)

One Size Fits All -- Time For Christmas Shopping At Chappell Hill Sausage Company

They have some great soup mixes, jams, jellies and preserves.

This is one of my Christmas presents.  I will be tasting it in late December.  It sure looks like it will be good on hot toast or rolls.

One of the wreaths they had for sale.  They other one was flocked with white.

This looks like it would be a cute gift, two painted wine glasses and a drink mix.  Who do you know who loves pink?

Here are some other good … (2 comments)

century 21: Extreme Fire Danger -- Scenes From The Aftermath Of The Last Wildfire in Magnolia, Texas - 11/14/11 02:35 PM

This is in Remington Forest where the fences melted from the heat of the fire.

This house was totally destroyed.  It looks like the fire pit, a car hood and a clay pot survived.  I can't tell if that is a refrigerator near the front or maybe some sort of rectangular metal box.  Everything else is just rubble and bricks.

This house used to be for sale by my real estate company, but the damage was severe enough for the owner to have the tarp put over the house and the windows boarded up. 

This house in Remington … (1 comments)

This picture was taken in Colorado.  You can see a few of the train chasers beween the train and the pine tree.

THis Southern Pacific engine was a beautiful contrast to the black and yellow train.  It almost reminds me of the daylight express colors.

Here is a head on shot of the train as it is coming around a corner.  Notice the Colorado flag on the front?  They changed the flag everytime they went into … (1 comments)

century 21: Bulls with HUGE Horns -- Houston, Texas - 11/13/11 06:43 PM
Bulls with HUGE Horns.  Several times a year I pass by these bulls with their enormous horns.

I stumbled upon them by accident on a infrequently traveled road in the Houston area.  When I saw the size of the horns, I just had to stop and take pictures.  They are different than Texas Longhorns, these horns are much bigger in diameter.

These two bulls were playfully butting heads and horns.  I guess they have learned how to spar and not hurt each other.

This bull looks really smart.

Here are the two brown bulls playing around again.  … (2 comments)

Chasing Steam Train Union Pacific 844 -- Oct/Nov 2011

This sunset was taken outside of Denver, Colorado.

Here is a picture of steam train UP844.

UP Steam had a GPS program that allows you to see the steam train UP844 (the red dot) as well as your own vehicle (the blue dot). 

Here is the first time I saw UP844 after it departed the Cheyenne, Wyoming station.  Needless to say it was very cold, as witnessed by the snow on the ground.

Here is another picture of the UP844 train as it steamed toward Greeley Colorado.  … (0 comments)

Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs, Colorado.  Halloween Day, 2011.

There are some great trails at Garden of the Gods.  Some are paved and are wheel chair accessable.

Picture of Pikes Peak from the gift shop at Garden of The Gods.  Unfortunately the day I tried to go to Pike's Peak there was a rock slide and the cog tracks were blocked with rubble that had to be cleared.

Another of the great pictures from Garden of the Gods.  The Garden of the Gods also has a feature called balanced rock that is very impressive.  Hope you get … (2 comments)

century 21: 2011 Fall Festival at Lone Star College -- University Park - 10/27/11 08:01 PM
2011 Fall Festival at Lone Star College -- University Park

I think the tricycles were part of a racing game, but I didn't try it.

People were dressed in costume, like this jester.

We even had a few witches stop by.

This Dracula was at the top of a large pile of balloons.

This bad dog escaped from his confinement to attend the festival.  I wonder if they gave him a hot dog.

One of the games was this "whirly gig" my technical name for this contraption that spins you every which away.
